Perth Data Recovery

how to fix a dead-hard-driveWhen files are deleted, many users assume that they are lost forever, however – Computer Mechanics give hope that this is not in fact the case. In fact, there are many ways that data recovery can be performed, although it is suggested that only people who know what they are doing perform these delicate procedures. The team at Computer Mechanics have been dealing with solving data recovery problems for over 17 years now. They are proficient and efficient at solving and recovering ‘lost’ files, from hard-drives, desktops and laptops, USBs, and other external hard-drive devices.

Sometimes, this occurs as a result of hardware damage or corruption to the files, in which case, the file index can be re-written and thus the documents restored.

Many people these days believe that DIY is the way to go. However, the team at Computer Mechanics cannot warn against this more – DIY data recovery often results in failure. This occurs through the download of free programs, which over-work an already problematic hard-disk. So, don’t risk your data.

If you really want to rescue ‘lost’ data, there is really not much time to wait. The sooner that the problem is discovered, the sooner the data can be recovered. The longer that you wait, the more difficult it becomes to solve these issues.

Determining the issue allows for the next step to be made in the data recovery process. If it is a problem with the hard-drive, or there is a virus – all these lead down different paths. If you know when, and how the data was lost, the easier it is for a data recovery professional to solve the problem and recover any lost files.

Regardless of the problem, shut everything down immediately. Tell-tale signs of data loss and hard-drive failures include a clicking sound from within your computer, or a blue screen showing up on your computer screen. Once this occurs, it means the hard-drive is ensuring that more damage is not done to it, so do not attempt to ‘solve’ any problems you may feel that it has.

If you are unsure of whether or not your device needs data recovery, take it into the Computer Mechanics or give them a call to see what advice they can give you on your situation. If you have any concerns, shut down your device immediately – and do not attempt any DIY methods for recovering data. The specialised team at Computer Mechanics are determined to recover your data fast and successfully, solving any other hard-disk issues that you are having with your computer.
